The Road goes ever on and on; Down from the door where it began;
Now far ahead the Road has gone; And I must follow, if I can;
Pursuing it with eager feet; Until it joins some larger way;
Where many paths and errands met; And whither then? I cannot say.

East to West Photos: Day 33

Royal Wedding Day, Friday 29 April (0730-1530) (Dulloch Hamlet to Inverkeithing*)
Distance: 20 miles (Tot: 579.75)
Weather: mainly sunny

(*In case anyone’s spotted the discrepancy, let me explain: Day 32 ended at Inverkeithing; Day 33 started at Dulloch Hamlet. The 0.75 miles inbetween Inverkeithing Station and the campsite at Dulloch Hamlet was covered on Day 32a (it not being far enough to warrant a day number of its own), but, unsurprisingly, no photos were taken during that fifteen-minute walk)

By way of surroundings, Day 33 was the least interesting day of the entire trip. It was all on tarmac, although not all on roads. This disused railway line took up a chunk of the day, but without views and with long straight sections it wasn’t the most inspiring walking that I’ve ever known:


Even when we were on roads they were nice friendly ones, just like the signage told us they would be:


Thankfully, by the end of the day lumpiness was coming into view.


The original blog post for the day? You’ll find that here.
